My girlfriend and I were looking for a weekend get-away and came across the Dove Nest Bed and Breakfast. Upon arrival to the Dove Nest we didn't know what to expect but once we stepped out of the vehicle we were treated by Jitka with a very warm welcome! Both Jitka and her husband John were friendly, personable and made... More

My husband and I had planned a quick overnight get away in the St. Joseph area. We wanted to check out some wineries and have some quiet time together. I was struggling with our accommodation choices and we waited until the morning of to call Jitka and inquire about a room. She was very accommodating and friendly and we booked... More

Very good place.! Great hosts! Very good location and great breakfast! Small lake by the place. Fireplace in the room and real fireplace in the main lobby! Very quiet place, clean and fresh air! Close to the harbor! (15min)

We stayed in the Royal Oak suite & we were spoiled each morning with the best three course breakfast I've ever had. Highlights of our stay: we loved the large room with vaulted ceiling plus relaxing in the jacuzzi tub. We appreciated the beautiful views from our balcony with sliding door and were so happy they had a DVD library... More

My wife and I had a short one-night stay but have only great things to say. We arrived late, and Jitka greeted us and was very friendly. She gave us a bunch of restaurant recommendations. The house is very clean and cozy. The Royal Oak room was great. They had turned on the heaters before we arrived which made it... More

My husband and I stayed at Dove Nest after receving a very generous gift certificate from our daughter for our anniversary. She raved about her stay a few months earlier and knew we would love it. She was right. It was a short drive from Chicago and we made several stops along the way to visit wineries and other points... More

My husband and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary at Dove Nest. It was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast and it was enjoyable! The host showed great hospitality! We wanted to just relax and we are able to do that at Dove Nest.

After reading many reviews on Dove Nest, it seemed like the perfect place for a two-day getaway while my fiancé and I had the same time off work (which does not happen often!). However, I am disappointed in the experience we had at Dove Nest. We were hosted by John only, although I had set everything up with Jitka and... More

Wow, what a disappointment....on both sides, I must add. And all what was needed was just a little bit of more communication: let the other party know that one prefers privacy to conversation. And do not let other party think that everything is OK when one does not feel OK. Would I invite John for a lunch and pay for... More

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and picked Dove Nest B &B because it was near St Joseph Mich where we wanted to visit. We were pleasantly surprised by the hosts Jitka and John. They were very kind and helpful during our visit. Not to mention the delicious breakfast that they prepared for us. We would recommend this... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try a B&B for the first time and picked the Dove Nest based on its stellar reviews. I will agree that the food was amazing; Jitka has a knack for making healthy and delicious food with wonderful presentation. The Royal Oak room was clean and comfortable, complete with a large whirlpool tub which was... More
